[PC] Crossout 0.10.60 Mass Contagion

 

Welcome to the Crossout 0.10.60 update! You will get to experience new missions of the story campaign “Contagion”, the in-game event “Another Year in the Wasteland”, the updated map “Control-17 Station”, as well as many balance changes, interface improvements and more!

Additional story campaign “Contagion”

  • With the update 0.10.60 we continue the additional story campaign and present five more new missions.
  • The first mission becomes available after completing the side-mission Call for Help”.
  • We remind you that the “Contagion” campaign's tasks can be replayed while in a group. For this, it is necessary that the leader of the group accepting the tasks has not completed them yet. You can also reset the progress of your own story campaign after completing the main tasks.
  • The additional campaign automatically becomes fully available to those players who have completed the Awakening story campaign, if its has not been reset.

Changes in the effect of explosive damage on decor

  • The decor no longer absorbs the damage from the explosion of the projectile hitting it.
  • Upon hit, the projectile destroys the decor, and the explosion and damage pass through the parts closest to this decor, following the trajectory of the projectile’s flight (the search for parts within a certain angle will no longer be conducted).
  • The entire decor, which is mounted between the point of impact of the projectile and the part which the explosion hit, is also destroyed. The projectile's explosion occurs either after contact with a structural part, or, if there are no structural parts in the projectile's flight path, with the last destroyed decor.
  • Weapon perks still work upon contact with decor. So the fact of hitting the armoured vehicle counts (when, for example, only the decor is in the path of the projectile's flight, and there are no other parts behind it).
  • Exploding projectiles of the crossbow “Phoenix” still attach to the decor, if they hit it. And the same decor is now the epicentre of the explosion.

Let's have a look at an example of the new mechanics. If hitting the “Inflatable Mammoth” used to destroy only the decor itself, now the explosion directly affects the “Buggy trunk” part to which the decor is attached, and destroys it.

Reworked map “Control-17 station”

We invite you to test the updated version of the map “Control-17 station”! We reworked its appearance, changed the arrangement of objects and the location of the roads. This will not only refresh your impressions during the battles at this map but also solve the controversial balance in the battles between the two teams.

In-Game Event “Another Year in the Wasteland”

It's hard to recognize the heart of a factory range for military equipment in a hangar sheltered by sand and burnt by the sun. They used to recreate the conditions of real battles, adjust weapons, evaluate bullet ranges, and conduct trial trips here. And now the gang of Horsemen of Apocalypse has appropriated the territory.

Veran Wolf was an ordinary employee of the production department at Waderkvarn. He never had any bright ideas, nor was he particularly efficient, but he did his job on time and in good faith. Everything would have gone on as usual, had the apocalypse not happened.
Poor Veran had the misfortune to be at the test site when the doors shut, forever isolating him from his past life. A group of employees who'd gone completely crazy seized the power inside. The tyrants were overthrown with great difficulty. The Horsemen lived at the test site, never got in trouble and never started any. Until one day the tyrants returned. Twice as strong and three times angrier. Rivers of blood poured in, and Veran’s nerves broke down. A beast awakened inside the quiet clerk. And inside it grew a wild, all-encompassing hunger. And it was impossible to relieve it. The attackers were defeated largely due to Famine, who did not know pity. When he was dragged out of his armoured vehicle, the beast was gone. Only the bewildered Veran remained.
Over time, Wolf learned to control Famine, asked it to put on a mask, so as to protect himself from the beast. Though the other personality may scare Veran, for the Horsemen's sake he is ready to release it to the call of Death again and again. And may the Wasteland shudder upon hearing his hungry howl.

General

Helping an ally up no longer rewards you with points in battle.

Raids

General

An improved mechanic of scoring points in raids:

  • Points for completing the assigned objectives are now awarded only to those players who have contributed to their fulfilment.
  • To get points for the successful completion of an objective, the player must receive at least 10 points during its execution for the destruction of raiders or turrets and interaction with objects.
  • Changed the amount of points that are being awarded for various raid tasks. The overall possible amount of points for completing all the tasks has not changed.

“Heat and run!”, “The last convoy”, “Gone in two minutes”

  • Increased durability of trucks at all difficulty levels.
  • Reduced the number of opponents for groups of 3-4 players.
  • Increased damage of bruiser mobs on medium and hard difficulty.
  • Increased the damage and durability of the ringleaders of Lunatics and Scavengers.

“Steel cradle”

The amount of points and resources, received for the completion of the raid has been reduced by a third.

“Frontier defence”

  • The durability of the turrets has been reduced for all difficulty levels
  • The time between raiders' attacks has been reduced

Clan battles

Now if there is no player in a clan, its name and tag will be automatically deleted and can be used by other players when creating a new clan.

Cabins

Bastion

Hans' skill “Indomitable” now affects the cabin “Bastion”.

Photon

Jade's skill “Medium Heavyweight” now affects the cabin “Photon”.

Cerberus

Weapon booster “Tormentor” increases the damage that the melee tool built into the cabin deals.

Steppe spider

The cabin's perk increases the maximum speed of mechanical legs by 10 km / h.

Developer comment: According to statistics, in most cases, mechanical legs were used in conjunction with the Steppe spider cabin. Thanks to its perk, you can significantly increase the movement speed on this suspension. We would not like to “tie” the legs to only one specific cabin, so we are increasing the maximum speed of mechanical legs and slightly reducing the bonus from the perk of “Steppe spider”. Thus, the maximum movement speed with the cabin “Steppe spider” does not change, and cars with other cabins and mechanical legs become more efficient. 

Movement

Mechanical legs “ML 200”

The maximum speed of mechanical legs increased to 40 km / h.

Weapons

General

All tower cannons (“Little Boy 6LB”, “ZS-34 Fat Man”, “ZS-46 Mammoth”, “Elephant”) can be mounted on the sides and under the bottom of the armoured car.

Revolver “Corvo”

  • The reloading speed of the revolver varies depending on the hardware used. At the moment, it is accelerated by the engines: “Hot Red”, “Oppressor” and “Colossus”.
  • The perk of the “Echo” cabin also increases the speed of reloading weapons.

Developer comment: According to the latest data, the effectiveness of the revolver does not match the rest of the weapons of epic rarity, and we want to improve it through synergy with other parts.

Single-shot shotguns “Junkbow”, “Fafnir” and “Nidhogg”

Shotgun spread mechanics changed from random to preset.

Developer comment: In the previous version the spread of shotguns was quite high, and one salvo of a shotgun could be either extremely accurate or highly inefficient. We want to remove such random mechanics and make single-shot shotguns more predictable weapons.

Frontal machine gun “ST-M26 Tackler”

While the perk is active, the machine gun additionally gets 50% resistance to thermal damage.

Autocannons “Whirlwind” and “Cyclone”

Projectile explosion radius increased by 0.2 m.

Developer comment: Practice has shown that the previous change of the Rapier autocannon was successful and helped to increase the effectiveness of the weapon. Therefore, we decided to move in the same direction with the Whirlwind and Cyclone autocannons.

“Reaper” minigun

Weapon durability increased by 18% (from 380 to 450 pts.).

Developer comment: Analysis of the latest statistics showed that the “Reaper”, despite its effective perk, simply does not have enough time to deal sufficient damage due to its low durability — it's quickly destroyed. We are increasing the durability of the minigun and we will continue to monitor its performance in battle.

Tesla emitter “Spark III”

  • The time required to deal the maximum negative effect on the enemy has been increased from 1.5 to 4 s.
  • The part's perk has been changed: “When dealing damage, reduces the power and speed of the enemy's car, as well as weapon reloading speed by 6% for 1 second. The effect stacks up to 12 times.”
  • Now the emitter reduces the target's movement speed and weapon reloading speed to 72% (see comment below).

Developer comment: From the point of view of balance, one of the main drawbacks of the Spark was that the maximum negative effect of its perk was applied to the enemy almost instantly and did not leave the opponent a chance to react. Now the maximum effect will take longer to apply, which will increase the chances of resistance or retreat. In addition, as a result of the tests, it turned out that the description of the emitter's perk was incorrect, and the negative effect applied to the enemy was higher, due to a number of circumstances. We are reducing the negative effect of the Spark, and now the slowdown of enemies and the increase in reloading speed will not be so strong.

Cannon “CC-18 Typhoon”

The first hit with the gun will block the enemy from controlling his armoured vehicle for 1 second. A second hit on the same opponent will result in a loss of control for 0.5 sec. Subsequent accurate shots on the same vehicle will not disable control until 5.5 seconds has passed since the last shutdown. It does not matter whether all the projectiles were fired from the same cannon or from different ones.

Developer comment: With a well-coordinated team of “Typhoon” owners, you have the opportunity to control one target for a long time — basically control it right until its destruction. Thanks to the changes, the weapon will retain its effectiveness in one-on-one battles, and at the same time it will be impossible to “remove” the enemy from combat for a long time when playing “team vs. team”.

Pulse Accelerator “Scorpion”

  • Increased weapon accuracy when standing still and in motion.
  • Base damage reduced by 15%.
  • Reduced the penalty to damage caused when penetrating parts. Now the damage is reduced by 10% for each penetrated “cube”. Previously, the damage was reduced by 20%.

Developer comment: With these changes, we would like to focus on the fact that the Scorpion is a sniper weapon capable of penetrating the hulls of armoured vehicles and destroying explosive modules with a successful shot. Therefore, projectiles will no longer lose so much damage when penetrating parts. Due to the increased accuracy, you will be able to destroy explosive modules of enemies. Such a boost can seriously increase the weapon's effectiveness, which would affect the balance of power. Therefore, we are compensating for this by reducing the base damage.

“Mandrake” howitzer and “Incinerator” catapult

  • Sensitivity settings along the X and Y axes for the catapult and howitzers have been added to the “Settings — Game” menu section. This option will affect only the aiming from the “Mandrake” and “Incinerator”.
  • After each shot, the scope will no longer return to the standard position.

Developer comment: We would like to thank all the players who shared their experience in using the updated sight mechanics. We took into account your wishes and instead of returning the sight to the standard position after each shot we add the ability to adjust the sensitivity of the sight.

“Porcupine” minelayer

“Porcupine” barrels are no longer destroyed by the Spark III emitter immediately after the shot from the minelaying machine.

Structural parts

  • Now, with each new level of prestige in the “Dawn's Children” faction, the player will get random structural parts from the following list (until all the parts are received):
    • “Left rib” and “Right rib” — 1 pc. (both parts are issued for one level of prestige).
    • “Left phalanx” and “Right phalanx” — 1 pc. (both parts are issued for one level of prestige).
    • “Rump” — 1 pc.
    • “Skull box” — 1 pc.
    • Thus, all structural parts can be obtained for 4 levels of prestige with Dawn's Children faction.
    • Attention! The parts are issued for each new level of prestige obtained after the update. Prestige levels received before the update are not counted, and the parts are not given for them.
    • If you purchased the “Horsemen of Apocalypse: Famine” pack (regular or elite version), then if you increase the level of prestige with Dawn's Children faction, no additional structural parts will be issued.
  • Now, when you reach the 14th reputation level with the Lunatics fraction, the player is given 2 additional parts “Buggy Step Plate”.

“Mariposa”

  • Durability increased from 64 to 75 units.
  • Mass reduced from 123 to 115 kg.
  • PS reduced from 40 to 28.

“The Omen”

  • Durability reduced from 83 to 71.
  • Mass reduced from 115 to 86 kg.
  • PS reduced from 50 to 32.

“Bully” bumper

  • Durability increased from 21 to 68 units.
  • Mass increased from 41 to 72 kg.
  • PS increased from 26 to 35.
  • Increased bumper damage in collisions.

Developer comment: With these changes, we want to systematize the parameters of the bumpers taking into account their faction affiliation and increase the attractiveness and efficiency of those parts that are rarely used in crafts.

Hardware

Changed the mechanics of scopes. They used to change the field of view of the player. Now their use affects the magnification.

  • A filter by the type of parts was added for the function “Can build” at the exhibition:
    • The filter allows you to find armoured vehicles at the exhibition, which you can assemble without certain parts (for example, without a weapon that can be replaced with your own).
    • To open the window with the filter you need to click on the gear next to the “Can build” button.
    • In the list that appears, you can select those types of parts that will not be taken into account when searching for suitable crafts.
  • Added the option to manually lock a part in storage (right-click — “Lock”):
    • You can lock parts, paint and stickers.

  • New achievements have been added to Steam for gaining prestige levels with Dawn's Children and Steppenwolfs factions.

  • Fixed a bug where a quick purchase/sale of parts in the blueprint window of the vehicle did not lead to updating the counter of required/missing parts.
  • Fixed a bug where players selected to be invited to “Custom battle” were reset when scrolling through the list of friends.
  • The bug with the asymmetric collision model of the Tesla “Spark III” emitter has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where during the assembly of a Leviathan or a machine with a large number of parts, not all of them could display welding points.
  • Fixed a bug where it was possible to place structural parts under the mechanical legs “ML 200”.
  • Now the rate of fire of the shotgun “Nidhogg” in the characteristics window corresponds to the real value.
  • Fixed a bug where some assemblies for building a composite armoured vehicle could “fuse” with each other.
  • Fixed a bug where the effect of the skill “Indomitable” (Hans) was not displayed in the window of the characteristics of the assembled armoured vehicle.
